Very slow import of resources through Kolibri Studio


I recently started using Kolibri (on a Windows 10 PC). I found it is extremely slow to import resource through the Kolibri Studio. It took about a hour to import about 15% of a 94 MB resource.

I wonder if it is normal among the users. I live in China so I also wonder if that is a potential reason and whether there are solutions to this problem. Many thanks.


Hello Jeff,
Yes, we are aware of this issue and are working on some ideas for speeding things up in the future. Currently, the content importer downloads only one thing at a time. In the future we’re thinking about making it download multiple things at a time.

In the meantime, a good workaround would be to download the content you need onto one device and then manually provision it to other devices, e.g. using a USB stick or local file sharing. Here is a guide on how to do this.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and welcome to the community forum! :wave:
